Willkommen Anna!

I've been absent for a while, but it's been for a good reason. Do you remember when I alluded to our life getting more hectic this fall? The time has arrived. We added a teenager to our mix last Friday!

Some people, when they get the hang of two kids, say, "Hey, how 'bout we have another?" Some adopt. As for us, we said, "Hey, let's get a teenager...from another country...for 10 months!" And that's what we've done.

Anna is 15 and from Germany. She'll be a family member in our home until next May, when she'll return to Germany. We're looking forward to the next 10 months. We hope that we will learn as much as she will.
